I've read all of Charlie Carillo's books and have NEVER been disappointed. Each and every book throws you right into the story; and the characters are all exceptional in how they are written. Unlike many books where someone may tell you to get through the first 50 pages, Carillo's books whisk you into a storyline so quickly that you won't want to put the book down. Found Money is no exception.

I'm always excited to see when a new Carillo novel is published because I know I will have at least a couple of days of good reading before I finish it and am left waiting again.

I say "surprisingly" because I've read quite a few of these free Kindle books and have not enjoyed, or even made it through, the bulk of them. I will say that the book started kind of rocky for me. I was having trouble getting into Artie, especially since he was supposed to be 25 years old, but some of the descriptions made him sound older. For example, in the beginning of the book Artie was checking himself out in the car and thinking about how his waist was still trim and he still had his hair and that sounded more a 35 or 40 year-old. At first I thought the writer was very young and viewing 25 as very old, but after reading the writer's bio I realized that he is older, and that he might be a little out of touch of what a 25 year-old would be thinking when he looks in the mirror. It may seem minor, but it took me out of the book.

Once I got past that I began to get more into the story and it really took off with Ritchie's arrival. I found all of the characters interesting, engaging and I can't wait to see how it all resolves.

So far, Richie is my favorite and I keep picturing Benedict Cumberbatch as the poet. I don't want to go too much into the story and spoil it but I will say that you might expect this to be a crime caper, but it is actually a really interesting character study. And while Artie starts off as a really annoying jerk-wad, he becomes more human and likeable as the story progresses.

I am still a few chapters away from the end, but I liked it enough that I felt the need to write a review. I'm interested in seeing what else this writer has to offer.

Enjoyable but definitely not a page turner. I enjoyed Charlie Carrillo's descriptions of his characters he makes them very real

This is an enjoyable little book, generally well written and briskly paced. The pat outcomes for a couple of the characters prevents me from giving five stars but I recommend the book and will certainly check out more from the same authors.

This book was a fun read; however, the only complaint I have is too much foul language. I think the story line would have been just as good without using the bad language. Just look at John Grisham -- hardly uses a bad word and all his books are best sellers. Just think about it.

I must admit I am a great fan of Carillo. I love the way he builds his characters and the humour in his tales. I was over the moon to find this free for kindle as had just finished reading God Plays Favourites. There is always a moral to his stories, a good dose of humour and characters you wish you could meet. Another winner, a very good read.

Artie wants Diane to have a baby, she's not so keen on that so, for her birthday he surprises her by buying her a house, she is not so happy to own a house that she has never seen before. She had no idea that he would do such a thing. I would say Artie is a controlling person. Anyway they do start to fix the house up when they find a box of money hidden in the ceiling. This changes everything. Diane is a neat piece of work she takes the money and runs upstate New York. Artie and Richie set out to find her so they go to Dianes parents house and ask her father if he knows where she is, he doesn't know and his wife also left him for another woman, she's a lesbian. Well the plot thickens and I won't say anymore. Some of the other characters are Spooney and Richies girfriend Marion and Duncan etc. I liked the book very much, it was fun and you will love the ending.

I don't know why a reviewer would say they feel they "have no right to review a book since I read only for pleasure".. Um hello, most authors write for their reader's pleasure! They sure aren't writing to get rich, because that takes a long well-established career and a lot of time and hard work. I personally read 100% for pleasure and always have. If if a book is entertaining and fun or intriguing, I'm willing to read it.
I found this book while browsing books about people who won the lottery, just because I was curious about the topic, and caem across this, which was kind of similar to coming into money. I liked the characters and the fact that the main character didn't end up wrapped up some little "happily ever after fairytale" because let's face it, that's not always the case. That's not real life. This book was a great read. Kudos to Charlie Carillo !
